Leyland Photographic Society will be running the Leyland Invitation Photographic Exhibition once again this year. The exhibition is scheduled to take place at the South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre as it has in previous years. The Exhibition will open on the 26th of November and run until the 20th of December. The official opening will take place on Saturday the 30th of November. Last season our members did very well in the exhibition with a number of acceptances gained along with a prize winner. Each individual’s entry will consist of up to 3 mounted prints at a cost of £4 per entry (not per print). The closing date for entries will be the 18th of October.
Results are just in from the annual ICPA competitions. We have managed a creditable 5th place in the Arthur Clayton Rosebowl but slipped to 9th in the Toulmin Shield and Frank Sellars Trophy, this is a slight improvement from last year. As the competition features two print sections we are somewhat limited by the number of members entering prints these days so please consider entering a few more prints this year. The tables are shown below…
We are pleased to announce that the annual battles with our friends in Spain and more locally in Blackburn and Darwen have been diarised again for this season. These have been well supported in terms of images and also in attendance both home and away and we hope this continues. We are responsible for hosting both of these events, please see the club programme for dates.
There are a number of changes to the battles as follows:
Torrevieja will now compromise of 25 images per club rather than the 20 used previously. This will create opportunity for more members to represent the club.
Blackburn and Darwen will now include prints for the first time to allow members to have their work seen how they want it. We have agreed this in principle and will allow up to 10 prints to be entered without setting a lower limit on the number as we don’t want to force this on anybody.
Welcome to the new look club website. We have made a few cosmetic changes to give the pages a fresh new look and have made some changes to the way the website works. Hopefully you will find this fairly intuitive. The links to what we believe are the most important and most visited areas are now featured on buttons at the bottom of the home page. We have also begun to add events to the calendar and these will include the club programme and other items associated with the L&CPU, ICPA plus some photographic opportunities.
Please have a look and let us know what you think and how it can be improved. Enjoy.
